Gravity English Movie Review

Ratings:4.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand’s Verdict (CNN IBN – IBNLive)

What links many of the greatest films ever made is their ability to transport the viewer to a different time and place, and, in the case of some films, to an entirely new universe. Not since James Cameron’s Avatar in 2009 have I enjoyed an experience as immersive as Gravity. Achieved by seamlessly merging live action with the most advanced visual effects technology especially developed for this film, Gravity takes us to outer space in a way that no movie has before. For all its slick technical wizardry, Gravity is about hope and courage and the will to come out alive. To best enjoy it, go in with patience and an open mind. I’m going with four-and-a-half out of five.

Gravity isn’t a movie. It’s the ultimate movie ride. It’s the closest most of us will get to being in space. It’s immersive, exhilarating, spectacular and visually staggering. Even if you don’t like movies or 3D or IMAX – please see this one in IMAX 3D. Because Gravity provides an experience that can’t be matched. It’s physical poetry. Just don’t go in looking for a story. Gravity redefines the cinematic experience. I’m going with four and a half stars and recommending that you drop everything you are doing and get to a theater now.

Tense, unnerving and arresting, every scene of the psychological thriller gives you gooseflesh. The spectacular special effects make you feel like you are a part of the film. For instance, every time Bullock takes a long, deep breath, you can feel yourself doing the same. That’s the impact of Gravity. It’s an experience. A game-changer of sorts, the film is bound to revolutionise special effects in movies.Cuaron keeps his film as realistic as it can get. No melodrama, no far-fetched stylised action scenes or convenient plot twists. The film stays unpredictable till the end. To sum it up, there are films and then there’s Gravity. For an edge-of-the-seat-rollercoaster-ride experience, watch it only in IMAX 3D. Note: You may not like this movie if taut and realistic space films are not your cup of tea.

Ratings:5/5 Review By: Rashid Irani Site:Hindustan Times 

A woman of substance and spleen, the meta-American heroine could be from anywhere at any particular point of time. Quite audaciously, Cuaron gives second billing to the charismatic George Clooney. And it is to the actor’s credit that he gallantly allows Sandra Bullock to steal the honours. In a career-redefining role, she is excellent, shuttling between a blitz of moods and attitudes, without ever losing sight of the ace up her sleeve—resilience. Filmed wondrously by Cuaron’s longtime cinematographer, Emmanuel Lubezki, with an accent on black, silver and indigo textures, Gravity restores our faith in today’s Hollywood cinema. Miss it at your own risk.

Gravity which takes everything he has ever done and then he not just reinvents his own oeuvre but also the very language of cinematic story telling because as the film unfolds and if you jolt yourself out off the captivating narrative you will realise that you are 17 minutes into the film and you have been watching a single take so brilliantly orchestrated that for a moment you wouldn’t be wrong in saying that this is the greatest choreography of actors, camera, lightning, camerawork, VFX all being conducted in absolute sync with the vision of the director

No lavish ensemble, rousing back ground music, smart Alec one-liners, or any form of trickery to indulge you , Gravity is the simplest of stories to be told on the big screen. 3D has never felt so real and over powering like it does in Gravity. Gravity sets a new bench mark in film making. One step ahead of James Cameron’s Avatar, it breaks new ground not just visually but also in terms of storytelling. Watch it in 3D and be mind blown!

Scary can be serene, arty can be commercial, and sci-fi can pack a strong emotional punch too. Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity proves all of the above antitheses can be true in cinema, serving up one of the best films you will watch this year.But Gravity’s absorbing bit is not about its suspense or tech-specs. It lies in the sheer emotional core that Cuaron imparts to his tale. The bond shared by two astronauts stranded in space and talking to each other only on radio can be tough to bring alive.  Gravity is a film that reminds you what the magic of the movies is all about. It makes you fall in love with cinema all over again.

  1. Days are not quite out of sight when the human race will have residential colonies on extraterrestrial zero-gravity space stations but in its own time. And till the time, when advanced science & the technology constantly making headways in getting breakthroughs achieve that, we have another power to experience what may suggest the future in its own way…the vision to create, replicate, reproduce and design the ‘dream-come-true’ ultramodern set-up into another brilliant piece of art never less than the predicted and the expected one.

    For Alfonso Cuaron’s sci-fi thriller GRAVITY (3D), adjectives like breathtaking, heart-pounding, awe-inspiring, spine-chilling, nail-biting are not merely some words mentioned in the phrase book but an experience at large. Or else you can say that these words look just plain simple formation of random alphabets when the jaw-dropping visuals of GRAVITY happen to you in the most extraordinary way that has never been tried before. It’s ‘out of the world’ in literal and every sense.

    In an unpredictably splendid scenic celestial beauty, when the crew of a space-shuttle undergoes with a critical accident caused by destruction in another satellite, 2 crew-members find themselves detached from their space-stations to float around in the vast environs of zero gravity world. Oxygen level is dropping down persistently. Connections to the base are lost. Hopes are the only survival instinct. Undying Spirit is the only way out. But aren't these the rules of earth they have left long way down?

    Filtering GRAVITY to extract one hero, to credit its success in the name of, will not be an achievable choice. Camerawork that makes you believe what all you see is never done in a comparatively tiny little studio covered in green, is absolutely picturesque and mesmerizing. Watch out for the opening sequence of a 10-12 min long one shot and you will be submerged into thoughts that how could they even think of it. Visual effects and the 3D technology have really gone beyond expectations. They don’t just make you jump or cringe into your seats for the sake of it but they grab & grasp you firmly to enjoy every bit of it like you are in there in all of your flesh and with your entire soul.

    Oscar award winner Sandra Bullock earns all your emotions to be with her character in all good and bad times. Her commitment to excel is very much visible through her emoting muscles and in physical appearances also. George Clooney plays an ‘out and out’ charismatic astronaut who, even in the worst case scenario, doesn't lose his calm and the pleasurable flirtatious attitude. Don’t miss the softer moments between them…of love ‘in no air’.

    After Stanley Kubrick’s philosophical sci-fi drama ‘2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY’, this is the most astonishing 90-min long trip to space, no one should give a miss. I am not sure how many of us will make it to the futuristic space-colonies in their lifetime but here’s a chance to live your dreams like never done before. Watch it in IMAX 3D if you have the privilege! [4.5/5]

    Special Note:
    Don’t forget to cheer when you hear a crew-member at space-shuttle singing ‘mera joota hai Japani’!
